first_imgMarineEnergy.biz has compiled the top news from marine energy industry from June 25 until July 1, 2018.Swansea Bay tidal lagoon gets an official ‘no’The UK government has rejected the Swansea Bay tidal lagoon proposal, stating that it does not meet the requirements for value for money.The UK government’s decision not to support the Swansea Bay tidal lagoon project – proposed by Tidal Lagoon Power – was unveiled by the UK energy secretary Greg Clark during his address to the House of Commons on June 25, 2018.The decision comes 18 months after the release of the government-commissioned review of tidal lagoon industry, known as the Hendry Review, which backed the wider tidal lagoon industry, as well as the ‘pathfinder’ Swansea Bay tidal lagoon.PLAT-I bound for Nova Scotia after buoyant Scottish trialsUK marine engineering company Sustainable Marine Energy (SME) is preparing to ship the PLAT-I tidal energy platform from Connel in Western Scotland, to Grand Passage in Nova Scotia, where it will be put to the second round of sea trials.The 280kW PLAT-I platform, which was under trials at Connel Sound since November 2017, is expected to be Canada bound on a container ship by mid-July.SME is now teaming up with the Canadian company Black Rock Tidal Power Inc (BRTP) for the follow on project that will see the PLAT-I deployed for the second phase of testing in the harsher sea climate.MAKO tidal turbine set for Gladstone port demonstrationAustralian-based tidal energy company MAKO Tidal Turbines (MTT) and Gladstone Ports Corporation (GPC) have joined forces to conduct a six-month tidal turbine demonstration in Queensland.The project, set for deployment at Port of Gladstone, will investigate how tidal energy can contribute to Australia’s energy mix by producing clean, predictable renewable energy.MAKO said its tidal turbine is expected to be installed at GPC’s Barney Point Terminal within months.Sweden pumps in €8.2M for full-scale CorPower deviceThe Swedish Energy Agency has granted CorPower Ocean a little over €8 million (SEK 85 million) to support the construction and testing of a full-scale device and subsequent wave energy park demonstration.The demonstration wave energy park will feature three full-scale CorPower units, according to the Swedish Energy Agency.Earlier in the week, the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) issued a performance statement to CorPower Ocean following the dry testing of Swedish developer’s half-scale wave energy converter (WEC) in Stockholm.The testing involved the dry testing of CorPower’s power take-off (PTO) on the Hardware-In-the-Loop (HIL) test rig, specifically designed for the purposes of testing the PTO onshore as part of the Wave Energy Scotland (WES) funded Hi-Drive project.European ocean energy market study hot off the pressDG MARE, a body responsible for the EU Commission’s policies on maritime affairs and fisheries, has published an ocean energy market study which outlines the financial needs of the ocean energy sector in the EU.The scope of the study, co-authored by WavEC Offshore Renewables and Italian business management consultants COGEA, was to estimate the financial needs of the ocean energy sector in the EU, identify potential financing gaps and possible financing solutions, and to analyse recommendations of the ocean energy roadmap in that context.last_img read more

first_imgFloyd’s death has sparked national outrage, and social justice demonstrations turned violent this week in Minneapolis and beyond. Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz activated the National Guard on Thursday in order to “help protect Minnesotans’ safety and maintain peace.”Kaepernick’s posts on Twitter and Instagram, both shared Thursday afternoon, addressed the rising anger across the country.MORE: Stephen Jackson opens up about friendship with George Floyd”When civility leads to death, revolting is the only logical reaction,” Kaepernick said. “The cries for peace will rain down, and when they do, they will land on deaf ears, because your violence has brought this resistance.”We have the right to fight back! Rest in power George Floyd.” A post shared by colin kaepernick (@kaepernick7) on May 28, 2020 at 9:47am PDTThe four officers involved in Floyd’s death were fired, which Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey said was “the right call.” The officer who was seen kneeling on Floyd’s neck in the video was later identified as Derek Chauvin. The FBI is investigating the incident. Colin Kaepernick is fully behind the ongoing protests taking place following the death of George Floyd in Minnesota.A video surfaced Monday showing a Minneapolis police officer pressing his knee into Floyd’s neck near a squad car. (Officers were responding to a report of a suspected forgery at the time.) Floyd repeatedly said he couldn’t breathe, and at one point he stopped moving and appeared to be unconscious. Floyd later died at a local hospital. Kaepernick became a prominent voice for social justice after choosing to kneel during the national anthem in 2016 while playing for the 49ers. “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” Kaepernick told NFL Media in August 2016. “To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”UPDATE: Chauvin was taken into custody and has been charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter, Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman announced Friday afternoon.
